THE Buenos Aires derby may be legendary but it’s by no means the only South American city rivalry and while the plot thickens in Argentina life goes in La Paz where it’s business as usual for these two Bolivian heavyweights.
BOLÍVAR v THE STRONGEST (8pm)
One things for sure, you’ll find no card markets here but there is value to be had in these derby matches – the way was always goals for both sides but the last year or so has seen predominantly low-scoring affairs with just 2 of the last 7 going overs.
It takes a brave man to bet unders in Bolivia but at 27-20 it looks a touch too big – both Bolivar and The Strongest are right back in the mix with games in hand (which they won’t want to waste) against San Jose and Royal Pari who are suffering from a bit of collective stage fright after such good form.
A fine margin victory for either side could be in the offing here with 2 of the last 3 being won by one – interestingly by the away side each time!
- Strongest to win by one (7-2, bet365)
